Stayin’ alive, stayin’ alive …

November 11, 2014

It’s been four years since my nonverbal friend Mark committed suicide.  This summer I critiqued a manuscript about a nonverbal girl who dies of pneumonia at the age of twelve.  I sometimes wonder why I’m still here.  I spend endless hours writing manuscripts and postings.  My books don’t sell.  The hard work and the long hours of writing will pay off soon.  I have a purpose and a goal to live for.  My friends keep me alive.  Mark will be always be remembered by your author.  He will have a book next year dedicated in his name.  Once in awhile I receive an email from a fan saying that I have helped them in someway.  I am making a small difference in the lives of people.  I’m getting there, people.  The light at the end of the tunnel is shining very bright now!  If only Mark could see me now.  He would be very proud.  Next year is going to be big.  I will never give up.  There is too much to live for!
